Sculptor Alan Wolfson created his Canal St. Cross-Section with strict attention to the minutia that makes living in New York City so interesting. The design is not an exact replica of the city block, but rather an homage to the melting pot of converging cultures lining the historical NYC street.

A massage parlor rounds off the diverse cultural spectrum comprising Canal Street.
